New Metal Revolution: Parkway Drive - The Thunder Down Under
More than any other band, Parkway Drive have kicked the door down for Aussie metal in the 21st century.
And their peers are stepping through in droves.
WHY DO YOU THINK THE AUSTRALIAN METAL SCENE IS GETTING SO MUCH ATTENTION RIGHT NOW?
Winston McCall, vocals: “There’s always been trends, but I think when it comes to heavy music from Australia, other than AC/DC and a few other bands here and there, this is the first time it’s happened in the modern era, simply because it’s something new. At the same time, I think there is a unique sound to most of the bands; there’s definitely an Australian flavour to everything. Nobody expected it, so it’s definitely gratifying to see people take notice.”
